The Kano House of Assembly had originally repealed the law, leading Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf to implement it by removing Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as the Emir of Kano.

Also, the governor reversed the establishment of an additional four emirates—Bichi, Rano, Karaye, and Gaya—that were created by his predecessor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The law was used to reinstall Muhammadu Sanusi II, who was dethroned by Ganduje in 2020, as the Emir of Kano.

However, Aminu Babba Danagundi, a kingmaker in the former Kano emirate known as Sarkin Dawaki Babba, challenged the legality of the law.

Represented by his counsel, Chikaosolu Ojukwu (SAN), he petitioned the court to declare the law null and void.

In a ruling delivered last Thursday, Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman, overturned the actions of the Kano government and directed all parties to maintain the status quo ante.
